Description Luca Foppiano 2008-06-16 09:30:27 EDT
Description of problem:
In GNOME, when I set a proxy and try to surf to my local address ( or
localhost) it doesn't work ( I have a local application which is listening on
that address). It work on epiphany instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Simply set new proxy using GNOME network proxy preferences and try to connect to
a local address (you should have a local application listening).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set proxy using gnome
2. connect to a local address:port
Actual results:
Firefox says "connection refused", using epiphany it works.

Expected results:
Firefox connect to local address.

Do you have in Edit/Preferences/Advanced/Network/Settings set "Use System Settings"?
What is the output of this command in xterm?

env |grep proxy

Remote websites works...maybe is a problem about proxy ignore host list.

[lfoppiano@sboing ~]$ env | grep proxy
[lfoppiano@sboing ~]$

Set your proxy correctly in gnome-network-preferences.
Comment 4 Luca Foppiano 2008-06-17 05:24:40 EDT

Comment 9 Luca Foppiano 2008-06-17 07:46:48 EDT
I guess my proxy preferences are corrected, in the host ignore list I have also
another field, and I can't reach to that hosts...(that hosts are locals)

With epiphany all works without problems.
Comment 11 Luca Foppiano 2008-06-18 02:56:03 EDT
ok, today when I launch env | grep proxy i got the correct strings: 

[lfoppiano@sboing ~]$ env | grep proxy
[lfoppiano@sboing ~]$ 

I didn't do anything respect last my message... Anyone have the same problem?
